Customer Testimonials

"I have used a lot of book dealers and the best book dealer that I have found is without a doubt, The Backpack. They have excellent customer service. When I have needed a book that they didn’t have in stock, they spent time looking for the book from other sources and promptly called me when they found it. Their prices are reasonable. Shipping time is good. If there is a problem with an order, The Backpack resolves it.  I highly recommend them!" Laureen P. South Sutter Charter School

"Doing business with David and Joan at The Back Pack has been an absolute pleasure.  We opened a new charter school in the summer of 2014, and they worked within our budget to help us select high-quality books at a great price.  We opened smoothly and have all the textbooks, leveled readers and classroom resources we need, and are forever grateful to David and Joan for sharing their expertise with us. For great books at a great price, The Back Pack can't be beat!" Steve P., North Carolina

"This is now the fourth year that I have dealt with The Backpack, to purchase all of my child's textbooks in the beginning of the year.  I have tried other companies, but no one delivers like The Backpack.  They leave no stone unturned, to locate a book, which may be hard to find, or out of print.  In addition, their prices are by far the lowest out there.  Every time that I call, I am greeted with extreme courtesy and professionalism.  What a pleasure it is to deal with The Backpack!  I will be back next year."  Susan H., Parent, Massachusetts

"I want to thank you for all the help you gave me when I was looking for a “needle in the haystack”.  You went above and beyond in your search for the book I was trying to find.  You did not have much information to go on yet you found it.  When the information wasn’t in that book, you continued the search and found other books that might have the pictures I was looking for. Your personal attention and care made me feel so important.  I wish that all businesses would treat customers the way you treated me. I can’t thank you enough for all you did. I have told all about your help with my search and I highly recommend your company to anyone searching for an old book. Sincerely, Nadine B.
